Traffic AI™ is an external library which after integration with a simulator or video game, places cars on virtual roads that behave like in the real world. The system was used for teaching intelligent driving algorithms intended to control real, autonomous vehicles. We use Traffic AI™ in both professional simulators (training of ADAS driver assistance systems) and simulation games we create.
Traffic AI™ is an advanced system which can be integrated with your project conveniently through API. It can run on a standalone machine for complex simulations or share hardware with your game or simulator.
Traffic AI™ works very well with a wide range of modern game and simulation engines: Unity3D, Unigine, Unreal Engine 4/5, Cryengine and VBS. It is also ready to be integrated with your individual ideas and we are ready to fully help you in this process.
Instead of dealing with the motion software of each car separately, you can set simulation parameters once and place intelligent vehicles on all roads simultaneously. Your system can take control over one of them at any time.
Our car behaviour models are based on intelligent algorithms – road traffic behaves like in the real world. Thanks to the possibility of additional configuration, your game or simulator will gain a completely new level of realism.
„Promotion of Traffic AI-supported SIMTERACT products on foreign markets”
This project aims to raise awareness of the Brand and Product in English-speaking and associated markets (second language speakers). The project is to result in the sale of TrafficAI-supported product licenses and implementations. These sales are to be global and expand beyond the most influential and opinion-forming target markets such as the United States of America (USA). The project is to result in an increase in employment in the company as well as raise funds through sales in order to finance work on the development of TrafficAI-related products addressing a much broader spectrum of functionalities. The indirect result will be to develop the current title using TrafficAI, which will be promoted on foreign markets through paid extension packages (DLC). Both aims are to translate into an increase in the number of product units sold globally.
The project implemented by Simteract S.A. is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Operational Programme: Intelligent Development, Priority Axis: Support for innovation in enterprises; Measure: Support for promotion and internationalisation of innovative enterprises; Sub-measure: Support for SMEs in the promotion of product brands – Go to Brand. Project value PLN 420,051.98, of which PLN 315,038.98 is co-financed.
